That could be you, getting showered with fake money.
We're now one week into El Monstero season here in St. Louis, and fans of spectacle and psychedelic rock have only four more chances to see the city's biggest tribute before it goes into hibernation for the season. Of course, three of those shows are sold out: the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard, 314-726-6161) only has tickets left for the Christmas day show. However, we have tickets and can send you to any of the remaining shows: tomorrow, Thursday, Friday or Sunday.

And in case you're wondering what this whole thing is about, we sent a photographer to Saturday's performance. You can get an idea of this year's staging by checking out her slideshow.

To win: Tell us in the comments below which Pink Floyd song you're most excited to hear played by the El Monstero crew.

Come on, who isn't excited to hear some In The Flesh? Do I daresay best Pink Floyd song (yet)? [yes I still have hope for a reunion...]


I'm most excited to hear "Vera," but I'm biased because I dance the ballet role for that song in the concert!  Truly, though, I'd love to win the Christmas day tickets, as none of my family has been able to see the show!


I was working in a group home for developmentally disabled adults in eastern Idaho during college.  The local rock station was doing an All Pink Floyd weekend, and I had to take several of the residents out on a community activity.  We went into the mountains to watch an incoming storm, and on the way back, "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave and Grooving with a Pict" came on.  They were just amazed that I could sing along to that one.

That being said, my middle-school daughter and I just love "One Of My Turns", mostly for the line "Why are you running away?"  It cracks us up every single time.


I would love to hear some Australian Pink Floyd covers!


I first thought about Mr Akins choice with "Careful...Eugene" but "Echoes" would have to be one of my all time favorites, having seen Pink Floyd play it in 1972 at Keil after they played the entire "Dark Side of the Moon" on a rainy night where the Keil staff in all their ignorance left ppl standing in line outside while the roadies repaired and set up the equipment late because of some unpredictable malfunction of their pyrotechnic show the night before.

"Careful With That Axe, Eugene"

Somewhat obvious choice, but has the benefit of needing no justification.
